UK: ‘Black Swan’s’ lesbian love scene prompts record complaintsEntertainment News Thursday, July 19th, 2012
The lesbian love scene between Natalie Portman and co-star Mila Kunis in the movie Black Swan drew more complaints than any other in the U.K. last year according to the British Board of Film Classification’s (BBFC) annual report just released.
The Independent reported that the “standout issue” for most of the cinemagoers, who complained, was an oral sex scene between the couple.
David Cooke, director of the BBFC, told the Independent, “It is a fairly strong scene, but it’s not anything like above the line. We felt Black Swan was in the boundary of a sex scene for a 15 rated film.”
The film, however, was met with huge critical acclaim and secured star Natalie Portman the Oscar for best actress.
